How often do you take your kids out?

Not out on day trips, just leaving the house in general. I am a sahm and ds3 is home with me all the time. Unless one of us is sick we go out every day, even if its just for a walk round the block or out in the garden. Obviously sometimes weather is a factor, its not for us as there is a sports centre with a play barn and indoor pool on our street, but I know not everyone is as lucky. I think its bad for kids to be kept indoors all the time, especially toddlers and preschoolers as they need stimulation. I feel bad for ds when I've been too sick to take him out.
I'm not going to judge you for sick days or weather being bad but if you keep your sah kids indoors all day several days a week in decent weather I think its lazy.

We go out everyday, play outside, walk to the grocery store, go places.. These past few days alone we have gone to the amusement park, the swimming pool, the library, the indoor play place..
I would go crazy if we didn't leave the house.

We usually stay outside in our backyard. We also have a pool so that takes up a lot of our day also.

I take my son outside at least once a day. Yes sometiems we just go out and play in our yard or we go swimming for an hour or something. I also take him with me shopping because he likes to shop for the most part. Or i take him to the park once or twice a week. But i have my days when yes im lazy and i let him play in the yard by himself ( i can see him from my window and he is 4). Today he hasnt been out much but that's because we were out all day at the museums and water fountain yesteday.

Everyday we are either going to the pool or playground most days both.

Probably not enough. She is 10 months and I just recently became a sahm. Before that I took her to work with me so we were out of the house every day from 7 to 6. It was too much and we were running on empty all the time so I turned in my notice and now have been home for about 3 weeks. These past three weeks have been super lazy. We just moved and though we are mostly settled we still have a closet full of boxes I've got to unpack. It's also been extremely hot out and there aren't too many places around here to take babies so we have just been chilling at home. On the weekends when my husband is off work we go out to the mall or to see our families but during the week we really don't go anywhere.

 Its summer so they are usually out playing in the yard at the very least daily. I try to plan a trip of some kind 3 times a week. That can be a movie, water park morning, play date with friends or just lunch at the play place.
